The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Tom Wolfe's The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test ushered in an era of New Journalism. "An American classic" (Newsweek) that defined a generation. "An astonishing book" (The New York Times Book Review) and an unflinching portrait of Ken Kesey, his Merry Pranksters, LSD, and the 1960s.

One Flew Over the Acid Test

Every time I re-read Electric Kool-aid Acid Test I get something different and unexpected from it. I have been moved from total fixation to repulsion, then empathy, fascination, exhilaration, envy, and most recently, sorrow. I lived during the 60's, experienced an acid test type happening in Madison, Wisconsin, and feel as the many participants in the original tests, that my life was profoundly changed by the experiences of several life changing trips. As I aged I came to the same conclusion that the Pranksters did; after you've passed through the doors of expanded perception several times, I can access those depths without drugs. This book should be required reading for every student of sociology and psychology everywhere.

My thoughts on this awesome book

I have been to over 160 grateful dead shows in my life and reading this book ranks right up there among them all makes me long for those days gone by and remember boys and girls never trust a prankerster. Tom Wolfe was at his best when he put pen to paper on this book
